Essentials by Ellen June 2019 Release
It’s been a looooong time since I had the pleasure of playing with one of the new releases from Essentials by Ellen, so I was thrilled to receive a couple of sets ahead of the day to play with, Squeeze the Day and Voices in My Head along with the new Speech Bubbles dies and matching dies for Squeeze the Day. Lookie:
One thing you can always count on with Julie Ebersole is plenty of SNARK and PUNNY FUN!
This set, Squeeze the Day, has many punny sayings and cool images of citrus fruit! I love limes, so I decided to have fun painting these with my Gansai Tambi watercolors. I added a few of the flowers with Altenew’s Caribbean Sky ink. A few Pretty Pink Posh Lime Sequins add a delicious sparkle! I didn’t end up using the matching dies here, but I’ve linked them below anyway.
With this set, Voices in My Head, I chose a VERY JanTink kind of saying! It reminds me greatly of the T-shirts I used to make for convention! I stamped a background using the Bokeh Dots Set. Then I stamped the girl, colored her with Copic markers, and fussy cut her out. Then I stamped the greeting and used the Speech Bubbles dies to cut it out. I created a frame with the Hero Arts Infinity Rectangles dies.
I had so much fun playing with these sets from the Essentials by Ellen June 2019 release!
